The report is based on the following understanding of climate-friendly living: Climate-friendly living durably ensures a climate that enables a good life within planetary boundaries. fChap. 1g When climate-friendly living becomes the norm, it leads to a rapid reduction of direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions and does not burden the climate in the long term. Climate-friendly living strives to achieve a high quality of life for all people while respecting planetary boundaries. It is about a good and safe life not only for some people, but for all, in Austria and globally.
In this sense, justice, and meeting all needs are both part of climate-friendly living. Similarly, the relations to other social and environmental goals (e.g. UN Sustainable Development Goals) are essential. Based on scientific literature, this report evaluates different approaches to transforming structures so that climate-friendly living in Austria is a permanent possibility and quickly becomes the status quo
